Disney announced their upcoming bundle for Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. The bundle will be available for $12.99 a month and it blows competing prices out of the water. Disney+ was already a game changer for some viewers, mainly due to the Marvel and Star Wars content to follow. Pair that with Hulu and ESPN+ and Disney‘s got themselves a deal.
There are three markets that Disney+ is geared toward: people who will pay $12 for ad-free Hulu, people who will pay $6 for ad-supported Hulu, and on top of that are the people who will pay $12 for ad-supported Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+. Every Hulu or ESPN subscriber will upgrade to the bundle that Disney is offering.
Disney’s streaming service, along with the bundle, will launch on November 12. The bundle is priced at the same amount as Netflix, which will lay heavy on the competitor’s shoulders. The 2020 Streaming Wars between HBO, Netflix, and now Disney‘s bundle is going to be a tough one. But, let’s be real, anything Disney is always going to be a hit; this bundle will kill it.
While that’s been in the works, there’s also been talk of Disney remaking some of their cult classics. Titles like Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Cheaper by the Dozen are among the titles that will be seeing possible reboots. CEO Bob Iger says that Disney is looking to reimagine some of these film favorites. These titles will be available for the streaming service exclusively.
These were once some of the biggest franchises in Fox history, now they are no longer viewed as theatrical properties.
Fans aren’t too pleased with the thought of a possible remake for the films they once grew up with.
While some weren’t happy, others cracked jokes. Here’s what they had to say…
